Ky-Mani Marley, the son of reggae great Bob Marley, was arrested for driving with a suspended licence on Thursday in Florida.
The 46-year-old singer and actor was taken into custody during a traffic stop by the Pembroke Pines Police. Following the arrest, attempts were made by the Jamaican entertainer to post bond the same night.
Carey Codd, Senior Public Information Officer at the Broward Sheriff Office Public Information Office, confirmed the arrest reports on Friday and stated that Marley is no longer in custody, according to jail records.
In the state of Florida, driving with a suspended licence for the first time is considered a second-degree misdemeanour punishable by up to 60 days in jail and a fine of up to $500.
A second offence may result in up to one year of jail and a $1,000 fine. A third conviction could result in a charge of a third-degree felony. The maximum penalty is five years in prison and a fine of $5,000.
Aside from his musical exploits, Marley is best known for his high-profile role in the cult-classic Shottas. In 2001, he was nominated for a Grammy Award for his album Many More Roads.
